    I'm not sure but I think the batteries are getting damaged when a bad connection on the data cable.



    I have just purchased two i9 phones and now have two of the four batteries that came with the phone giving me the same issue.



    The screen went black on both when the changer was connected.

    I am regretting this phone- when we got the phone it looked like it was charging- left it overnight- first battery- no luck- second battery no luck- I tried a new cable- no luck- anybody know what to do?

    I totally know what you guys are all talking about. I believe it may be bad manafacturing, however I am going to try a new cable before saying that for certain. For those of you (like myself) who dont have money to go and buy another phone and would like to figure this out there are battery chargers for the i9 batteries floating around ebay, so you might want to pick one up. That is my next move!

  • lee2811 Feb 02, 2009

    yes i have the same similar problem, the i9 batterys do not work in my i9 phone for some reason ive tried 3 and none work they dont charge either, so i tried a sony ericsson w800 battery and put it on the terminals of the i9 and it works (how strange). i tried the charger and that also worked, just a shame the battery doesnt fit in the phone, so you have to hold it. I dont get why the i9 battery dont work and the sony one does, its a pain really as now i cant find a battery that will work and fit it



    my email address is goldfinger2811@yahoo.com



    help me if you can

    phone wont power up or charge

  • chiggins Feb 18, 2009

    I got the cables off ebay, and before i even tried to charge the phone, the cable broke, so i guess i'll try the sony ericsson w800 battery and just tape it in or something. The new charger i got doesnt work in the wall, computer or car. i9- more trouble than its worth.

  • mscoop95 Mar 07, 2009

The I9 battery charger is th problem. There is a small tab on the bottom edge of the batery that allow it to clip in the phone. This tab prevents the battery from going all the way into the charger which causes a missalignment with the contacts and due to the contacts being very thin they tend to break off. If this happens you must use the USB cable to charge the phone, it plugs in under the charger. If your contacts are good you can take a thin knife and ease the tab over the edge of the plastic lip on the charger alowing the battery to seat correctly in the charger making the proper connection.

The issue is with the wall usb ac adapter just replace it (with a better quality one) and it should work, you can also charge the phone using your computer. Well... this fix worked for me.

The problem is the "intelligent" charger...
I9 as the same problem as LACROSS battery charger. While the battery is too low, the charger dont see it and dont even try to charge it.
The way to make charge with low battery is to:
- remove i9 battery cover(let the battery into the i9 phone)
- plug usb cable to i9(i9 is not able to charge the battery right now)
- connect, in parallel of the i9 battery, 3 AA battery (serial) for few second until the charger see the battery.

Then the charger will see the battery and will charge it (You will see the i9 display showing a battery).

I had the same problem as well
but i realized since the taps are the one's preventing the battery to fully go in.
that maybe if i tried the metal parts jus connecting that to the charger's metal, perhaps it could work.
And it did. the only problem is
you must have the charger upside down on the power outlet
so it will stay in place. since the battery isn't fully in, as it must be slanted. It might get frustrating to get it to stay, but it'll end up charging
